About Vibes on the Beach with Big Wiz
Vibes on the Beach with Big Wiz is usually an annual homecoming concert organized by Wizkid for his fans.
However, it didn’t hold for some years but the last Vibes on the beach with Big Wiz held around 2021.
This year, Wizkid has decided to bring back “Vibes on the Beach with Big Wiz”- a festival he dubbed will be the last time he performs in Lagos.
Details on Vibes on the Beach with Big Wiz
- Venue: Landmark Beach
- Ticket(s): 30k, 50k, 1M, 2M, 3M, 5M
This might have been viewed as an attempt to make people come to the concert but it seems like Wizkid is not joking.
For someone who sold out Madison Square Garden, performing at a Lagos Beach does seem ridiculous.
Meanwhile, the idea around it is that Lagos is Wizkid’s hometown and although he definitely doesn’t need the money, he should consider performing in Lagos even if it is once in a year.
All the way, Vibes on the Beach with Big Wiz promises to an intriguing festival with a lot of dance, energy and most importantly, good music
Let’s get the groove in!
